I have used it off and on for about 40 years. I have type of migraine that first affects the vision. This drug stops the headache if taken at first sign oo the headache starting.

I've been taking ergotamine for 13 years now and have had no adverse reactions, *except* on one occasion after VERY high alcohol consumption followed by 2 ergotamine pills. I had a mini-stroke that lasted about 10-15 seconds where I was totally paralyzed. Quite scary. I usually don't face issues when mixing this drug with alchohol, but that day was a high consumption of both. *To note and remember!* (I still routinely pop ergotamine with a couple of beers or whiskies, and never had any other trouble)Read More Read Less
